Mike Johnson: House ‘Has Duty’ To Hold Vote On Biden Impeachment Inquiry

via NBC News

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) supports the House GOP’s efforts to hold a vote on an impeachment inquiry into President Biden, citing a duty to follow the truth.

House Republicans allege that Biden and his family engaged in corrupt conduct, prompting an investigation led by Oversight Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.).

The inquiry has faced criticism from Democrats, with Hunter Biden expressing willingness to testify in a public setting, causing division among Republicans. (Trending: Greta Thunberg Caught on Video Going Full Anti-Semite)

“The evidence is so clear you cannot look away,” Johnson said. “The Constitution requires the House to follow the truth where it leads.”

“We have a duty to do this. We cannot stop the process.”

“At this stage, our impeachment inquiry has already shown the corrupt conduct of the President’s family, and that he and White House officials have repeatedly lied about his knowledge and involvement in his family’s business activities,” Johnson said last month.

The GOP is committed to pursuing a full inquiry and is considering a vote on the impeachment inquiry in the next two weeks.

The National Archives revealed an email from May 2016 that shows Hunter Biden was copied on a message discussing a phone call that led to the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma, where Hunter served on the board.

Judicial Watch obtained the records through a FOIA lawsuit, and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer requested related data.

“Judicial Watch announced today that it had received five pages of records from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA),” the report found.

On May 26, 2016, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter received an email detailing a phone call with Ukrainian President Poroshenko.

“Here’s another smoking gun.” “It blows the notion that there was any distance between Joe and Hunter Biden on the Burisma influence-peddling scandal out of the water,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

During an appearance on Fox News, former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin said President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden accepted bribes from his country.

“I have said repeatedly in my previous interviews that Poroshenko fired me at the insistence of the then-Vice President Biden because I was investigating Burisma,” Shokin said through a translator.

Left-wing “fact-check” articles, including one from CNN, have claimed that Shokin was not investigating Burisma or considered a threat to the company.

The explosive testimony of Joe and Hunter Biden’s longtime family friend and business partner Devon Archer revealed that they were required to get help “regarding the Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin.” Both Hunter and Devon sat on the board of Burisma.

“He was a threat,” Archer explained. “He ended up seizing assets of [Burisma owner] Nikolai [Zlochevsky] — a house, some cars, a couple properties. And Nikolai actually never went back to Ukraine after Shokin seized all of his assets.”

Shokin won a court order on Feb. 2, 2016 and seized Zlochevsky’s property. Shokin was fired roughly two months later on March 29. Biden later bragged that he demanded that Ukraine fire Shokin or else the U.S. would withhold $1 billion in aid.

“Well, son of a —–. He got fired,” Biden said gleefully. A reliable FBI informant also said Burisma CEO Zlochevsky paid off the Bidens with $10,000,000 for this service.

“You understood me correctly. This is how it was,” Shokin told Fox News. “There were no complaints whatsoever and no problems with how I was performing at my job. But because pressure was repeatedly put on Poroshenko, that is what ended up in him firing me.”

When asked if Joe Biden or Hunter Biden received bribes, Shokin said, “My firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case.”

“They were being bribed. And the fact that Joe Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for my dismissal, my firing — isn’t that alone a case of corruption?” he asked.

Democrats notoriously impeached former President Donald Trump on far less in December 2019. Democrats claimed Trump allegedly threatened to withhold military aid and a White House meeting from Ukraine if the country failed to investigate corruption within its government.

Democrats claimed this was “abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” which led to his impeachment on December 18, 2019.

In comparison, Biden has openly admitted to threatening to withhold aid while his son raked in millions as part of an international influence-peddling scheme.

For years, President Biden has repeatedly denied any involvement in his son’s shady overseas business dealings.

“Archer testified that Hunter Biden put then-Vice President Joe Biden on the speakerphone during business meetings, over 20 times. Archer testified that Joe Biden was put on the phone to sell ‘the brand,'” the report found.

“Now, the appropriate step is to place key witnesses under oath and question them under the penalty of perjury, to fill gaps in the record,” he added.

“Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else,” Rep. James Comer said this week. “That won’t stand with House Republicans.”
